Meet our pros and the Swing Catalyst Ambassadors

Tour players


“Golf is a sport where you’re constantly pushing yourself to do more and learn more. With the insight I gain from using Swing Catalyst, I’m arming myself with the information I need to make sure I have the strongest foundation possible.”



“I am always striving to get the most out of my game so when it comes practicing I like to have any and all information at my fingertips, Swing Catalyst gives me all that and more. Since using Swing Catalyst I have been able to pinpoint exactly where in my golf swing I can find some more power.”



“In my quest to be the best player I can be, Swing Catalyst helps me leave no stone unturned and gives me confidence I’m always working on sound principles. I feel I have also learned what it takes to create speed and power by using Swing Catalyst.”


Tour coaches


“Having video, force plate data and radar data all together makes Swing Catalyst a powerful tool for me. The complete picture is painted quickly for the coach. Change is measurable and identifiable, and the data is always around to go back to; whether you’re needing to get back to something or further away from it. It’s been a great tool for me as well as a quality control of sorts for my message.”


“Having a Swing Catalyst has been a game changer for my coaching in terms of both my understanding of the driving forces of the swing and my ability to easily convey those to my students. It is a great example of being able to use the best technology in the world to come up with the simplest solutions.
One of my favorite uses has been to measure the swing, suggest changes and drills that will bring about the suggested changes. Then we measure the drills to make sure they are having the desired results then re-test the actual swing to make sure we are moving in the right direction. Have had 100% buy in from students on this process.”


“I have used video technology and other peripheral tools for many years to decent effect, as my record reflects. Swing Catalyst 3D Motion Plates and software have made me realize that I was only using the X-ray machine to diagnose problems! Our 3D Motion Plates serve as the MRI to look deeply into things and it has taken my coaching to a whole new level. It is no longer an opinion, but cold-hard facts, evidence-driven coaching. I can quantify any intervention and tangibly display what was once mainly intellectual property. Don’t get me wrong, you’ve still got to teach, communicate, play detective, understand cause and effect along with coming up with simple solutions. But this technology allows me to make a more informed choice showing the student as much or as little as I feel they need at that time. Another overlooked and powerful use is archiving my players at their peak. Obviously, it’s great to have a vault to refer back to as it allows players to get back on track quicker, ‘Performance by Design’ I call it. All made possible by Swing Catalyst.”


“One of the reasons I bought my first Swing Catalyst plate back in 2010 was not only to help my players get better but to help me understand the golf swing better. The Swing Catalyst has helped me with countless college and professional players, but the surprising benefit is how much it has helped me get the club level golfer learn faster, play better and lower their handicaps quicker!”


“Throughout my career, I have tried to stay current with advances in my profession.  Swing Catalyst allows me to do this.  Not only having CoP tracing but also ground forces application in all three dimensions allow me to pinpoint swing errors in a much quicker time frame and adds another metric when paired with video and launch monitor info.  Thanks Swing Catalyst!”


“I am constantly striving to learn new and improved ways to maximize the efficiency in a player’s swing. Appreciating the importance of ground forces in the development of an effective golf swing, the Swing Catalyst system is unique in that it allows me to examine pressure-shift patterns and balance; information that I couldn’t ascertain if I were to rely on video alone.”

This data enables me to pinpoint precise areas for improvement, tailor training programs and track progress with extreme precision. It has been a game changer for optimizing swing mechanics and enhancing performance at every level of the game!”

Erich Kleim, Swing Catalyst Ambassador


As an avid student of the game and especially of how to most effectively coach it, Swing Catalyst has literally handed me a second career. Being able to see the invisible (in the short game as well) is extremely valuable since there is now so much less chance of unknowingly leading my clients down a wrong path.

The plate is effective for teaching everyone from beginner to tour player.

Thanks must go to our club’s partner, FlightScope, for making this possible, as well as Swing Catalyst’s Dr Scott Lynn for his great guidance.


“Swing Catalyst provides all of the essentials in video and force plate technology. The Motion Plate and video software integrate easily with my launch monitor, and provide me the most accurate data in the industry. Swing Catalyst simply makes me a better Coach!”


“The Swing Catalyst Dual Motion Plates and accompanying software represent an indispensable cornerstone of my teaching and business operations. The ability to have a student perform a movement pattern while being able to see in real-time the changes they are making greatly accelerates the learning curve for the golfer. From beginners to professionals, the ability to measure provides us with concrete results of what is helping the golfer create their swing. The utilization of pressure traces, 3D force graphs, and multiple slow-motion cameras empower rapid, in-depth analysis, providing golfers with immediate, invaluable feedback on their progress. There is no doubt in my mind that Swing Catalyst technology helps golfers and instructors improve much quicker than traditional learning!”


“We move ourselves in the world and in golf with our feet and the ground. Understanding your clients’ movement signatures and how to optimize them is critical for improvement in every aspect of the game. I have been using pressure and force feedback with clients for the last nine years and there is no question that Swing Catalyst’s system is the best available. The Foresight launch monitor integration and new force vector graphics will help your clients understand how to create more efficiency. I highly recommend investing in yourself and your golfers’ progress with Swing Catalyst.”



“The Swing catalyst Motion Plate and it’s partnering coaching software is hands down the best combination on the market, along with the use of a radar launch monitor it’s the perfect trio! Without a doubt every client of mine, no matter the age or ability will benefit from this technology. With the use and experience of force and pressure technology now since 2018 I know so much and can’t illustrate enough how important the ground is in the golf swing. Almost every movement is a by-product of a force applied into the ground, which then influences the body and club to move in certain ways and speeds. With my knowledge of the golf swing along with the Strength and Conditioning service for golfers I offer, I can really help improve each and every individual no matter the area of the game.”



“Since adding the Dual Force Plate System with Balance Plates, I’ve been able look deeper into player’s movement patterns, how it affects the club delivery and make changes quickly and easily. Having precise data relating to each foot’s contribution to the movement provides accurate insight into what the athlete needs to focus on to create optimal movement and improve the club’s delivery. The data Swing Catalyst’s system supplies is the backbone of my teaching and the future of golf instruction.”


“My approach to the movement that the swing is, has always been to look at the attributes and limitations of the player in front of me. The Swing Catalyst system with the Dual Motion Plates has unlocked a whole new perspective on what actually generates an efficient movement for each individual. With the Swing Catalyst system we are breaking down barriers every day for our students,we are alleviating pain with a more efficient movement and facilitating a longer life in golf. What more can you ask for? The information and knowledge associated with the team at Swing Catalyst is second to none, which only feeds my hunger to learn more.”

Maureen Farrell



“By amalgamating video, ground kinetics, and club delivery data in one clean and simple to use interface, a coach can get a complete picture of what is happening. In that sense, Swing Catalyst makes it easy to collect the clues and connect the dots between cause and effect, which not only helps pinpoint and accelerate diagnosis, but also helps field test interventions, as the feedback you get from the system is immediate and tells you if what you are striving to get the golfer to do, is happening.”


“The beauty of using the Swing Catalyst system is that it helps me quickly get to the root cause of a player’s ball flight issue and often it’s the invisible pressure and application of force where the errors lie. Swing Catalyst has helped me deliver information to my pros on TOUR, college players and elite juniors so they can perform at a higher level. But it’s also helped me with recreational players by offering another method of visually seeing and feeling improvement. So without a doubt Swing Catalyst has made me a better coach!”


“I am very honored and excited to be part of the Swing Catalyst Ambassador Program! I have been using Swing Catalyst at Berkeley since it first appeared on the market and was part of the 2016 Level 2 Certification program. I look forward to further increasing my knowledge on using Swing Catalyst to help my students play better golf and have a better understanding of their own movement patterns in the golf swing.”


“Passionate about the game and always looking for this little extra to help my golfers get better. Excited to move forward in my teaching/coaching with the Swing Catalyst 3D Motion Plate. Proud to be part of the Ambassador Team.”

Ted Long


“I played baseball and softball for a good part of my life. The impact of how the player interacts with the ground while throwing and hitting is far more obvious to him or her than to a person swinging a golf club. Nonetheless, they are of equal importance. Swing Catalyst allows me to track and measure the various forces and pressures regardless of how small a swing my student is making. Alongside my Trackman numbers, this offers comprehensive feedback to me and my students. Regardless of a student’s playing ability, in a short period of time, he or she is able to understand the complete picture of what is REALLY happening while they swing the club. All great teachers are great communicators. Swing Catalyst offers teachers a platform to communicate with their students effectively. It is a game changer!”

Patrick Lago


“At Lago Golf Academy, we take pride in using only the best technology to help our students get better, faster. Through the integration of Dual Force Plates, synced with 4 high-speed cameras, and our GQ Quad launch monitor, Swing Catalyst’s software provides pin-point accurate data in one easy to use package, which is essential in helping us provide the best instruction possible. Every student that walks through our door drastically improves their golf game and gains a wealth of knowledge of exactly what they need to do to improve their swing from the ground up.

It is an honour to be a part of the Swing Catalyst Team!”


“Who dares to teach should never stop learning. Therefore, and because I am a person who has only little desire for estimating data, I used Video and Balance Pads for the last almost 3 Decades. I am grateful to now become a Swing Catalyst Ambassador. The constant exchange with leading experts in golf directly benefits my athletes. SC gives me the ability to measure data properly and present it comparably to my clients.”



“The Swing Catalyst 3D Motion Plate is used everyday with our golfers here at my home club The Ledges of Huntsville. I use multiple technologies in my coaching but my Swing Cat 3D Motion Plate is the only piece of tech I use everyday. The 3D Motion Plate with video software has without a doubt made me smarter, takes the guesswork out of play, and allows my coaching business to run much more efficiently! The ability to measure a golfers kinetics throughout their motion with the use of the force plate has helped my understanding why golfers do what they do. Additionally, being able to look at a golfers GRFs, launch monitor data, and swing video on one easy to view screen was one of the biggest factors that led me to choosing Swing Catalyst! Thanks guys for developing such an awesome coaching tool that has really helped our golfers in a positive way and has allowed me to implement better golf within minutes out of each individual golfer that walks through the doors!”

Gianluca Patuzzo


“In order to be able to strike the ball with power and precision the player has to combine force with balance and stability. With the 3D Motion Plate I can measure the amount of force that is being put into ground and how the pressure is shifting between the rear and the front foot. Having these data is not only a great opportunity for a better analysis and a deeper understanding of the swing but also a possibility to communicate much better with my client. The quality and reliability of the product, software and support service are outstanding.”

Carson Hau


“I’ve been working with the Swing Catalyst 3D Motion Plate since 2016 and I must say it is like cheating trying to solve a problem. Being able to measure the golfers kinetics gives us the blueprint for their movements. Having Ground Reaction Forces, launch monitor data and video in one seamless software, gives me a new communication tool to quantify my students feels, so we work as efficiently as possible. The battle between feel vs. real can now be depicted in multiple facets. Swing Catalyst has been a vital tool in improving both my students and myself as a coach.”

“The golf industry today is moving towards more ground force measurement in coaching and instruction – therefore coaches like myself need to have a valuable tool to measure our clients’ movement in their golf swing. I use the Swing Catalyst 3D Motion Plate with video in my day to day coaching and love being able to provide expert coaching with measured results to my clients. I put a majority of my clients on the Plate – from new players up to expert level golfers. It’s been a terrific tool for showing my clients how important their connection is to the ground and what effect it has on their ability to create speed in their golf swing. I am excited to continue to learn about what it can show me as a coach and how I can apply it to my coaching. It’s a valuable tool for coaches and players alike.”

Marco Müntnich


“I have always considered golf as a two-connection game – players, managing the connection between their feet and ground plus their connection between their hands and the golfclub in a functional way, will give themselves better chances to shot lower scores on the course.  In our academy we like to provide the most accurate datas to our players, take the guesswork out of the training process and track their progress over time – that‘s why we installed the SwingCatalyst System in 2019.”

“As an early adopter of new technology, I knew almost immediately that the products from Swing Catalyst would change and improve the ways coaches evaluate, analyze, and teach their students. My instinct was correct – the suite of Swing Catalyst products has become required technology for any coach that wants access to the critical information needed to help students improve their game and lower their scores. From their great video software products to their best-in-class balance plate and motion plate technology, Swing Catalyst is undoubtedly one of the leaders in the golf industry.

On a personal note, the Swing Catalyst team is made up of dedicated individuals who are determined to provide the best solutions available in the marketplace. I can say without hesitation that I’m grateful to be on the Swing Catalyst team and I appreciate the great ongoing support I receive from them whenever I need help.”


“Having had the opportunity to teach now for several years using both the Swing Catalyst Balance Plate and the 3D Motion Plate has been instrumental to problem solving student issues with their impact. Additionally, the information gives me and the student the feedback necessary to induce improvement. Instructors who use this technology understand how a golfer uses the ground to influence impact dynamics as well as speed and consistency.”


“Swing Catalyst has exceeded my expectations since the first day we got it.  I did a lot of research on both different software and different motion capture systems.  In the end, I found the best of both worlds in Swing Catalyst.  Even if I wasn’t purchasing any type of ground force plates, I still would have purchased the Swing Catalyst software by itself.  When we decided to add a Balance Plate in one bay and the 3D Motion Plate in the other, it became the finest integrated teaching system I’ve ever used.  Our ability to catalog swings, track improvement, create better forces and torques, and seamlessly navigate through a lesson, affirmed our decision to implement Swing Catalyst to its full extent.  No other system can compare.”


“I’ve always been a big believer in the old saying, ‘Why guess when you can measure?’ At the Hal Sutton Golf Academy, we use every piece of technology available to help our players improve and that starts with our Swing Catalyst 3D Motion Plate. Understanding how our players interact with the ground gives us a huge advantage when diagnosing their golf swings. From the software interface to the data provided (pressure trace and forces), we’ve absolutely loved using this plate for the past 2 years.”


“Partnering with Swing Catalyst has truly reinforced our philosophy of developing functional patterns rather than just one model. This partnership has drastically improved our ability to get right to the problem prohibiting a player from reaching their ball control potential. The pressure trace technology is the best in the business and the video software has proven be just as elite. We have used Swing Catalyst with great success for all levels of golfers. Thank you to Swing Catalyst for allowing us to increase our player development to an even higher level”


“As we are straining and striving to be our very best; demands as coaches, trainers, and players is to utilize the best resources available. Swing Catalyst has provided that service through their video software that integrates radar data and ground reaction force measurements, 3D Motion and Balance Plates, and most importantly, a user interface that anyone can use.”


“I’ve measured pressure data for over ten years because I believe the feet and legs are the keys to swinging consistently and powerfully. Since installing my Swing Catalyst 3D motion plate, I have been able to dig even deeper into GRF with my students. The data helps them learn faster and maintain the swing changes.  The improvements have led to significant increases in club speed and consistency with my players. The software interface is easy to use, reliable, and syncs with my launch monitors. I highly recommend the Swing Catalyst system and wish I would have purchased one years ago!”


“Swing catalyst is an essential part of my coaching formula. It catches ‘blind’ information, allowing me to better understand the student’s ground interaction.

With more than 2000 high-resolution sensors, the student gets a real feel of the center of pressure during the live biofeedback mode, generating also a better torque and forces on their feet during the swing. Knowing how the pressure shifts and how the ground reaction forces work is essential in every swing.

The software is more than great and elegant. I can integrate and store all the data I get from Swing Catalyst, GCQuad, video analysis and K-Coach in one store and my students have access to it, using the Swing Catalyst App.

I’m proud to be part of the Swing Catalyst Team!”


“The Swing Catalyst Motion Plate has allowed me and my instructors to validate what we see in the motions of our golfers and also allows us to see things that in the past we may have missed. Being able to measure the Kinetics that produce the kinematics of the body and then compare the two is invaluable in seeing why one golfer’s motion is efficient and another isn’t even though the two look similar on video. Swing Catalyst’s motion plate is one of the most revolutionary pieces of equipment to come into the golf instruction business in years.”


“Installing the Swing Catalyst 3D Motion Plate allows me to measure the kinematic forces that drive the golfer’s kinematics.  If you want to solve a problem, you need to get to the cause, and measuring the Ground Reaction Forces is the only way to truly understand why the players do what they do.  It allows my clients to quantify their feels and move forward with a great cause and effective understanding of their golf swing.”


“About four years ago I went on a search for the next great piece of technology to add to 2D video and Trackman. I wanted a tool that was a measurable, a tool that could help players of all skill levels and a tool with a team behind it that would help me grow as a coach. As I applied these desires it became obvious that Balance Plate was the tool and Swing Catalyst was the company. I could not be happier with the support I have received from the technical team, the education I have been afforded by Dr. Scott Lynn, or the relationships I have built with some of the top coaches in the world. In the end, it is all about making the athlete you are coaching the best version of themselves that you can, and Swing Catalyst offers an avenue like no other to do that.”


“My philosophy of coaching starts with ‘no stone unturned’. I want to know as much as I can so that I deliver coaching in the simplest terms, but I must have great data to base my prescriptive process upon. Furthermore, the forces and torques at the hands and feet are essential to my golfers getting everything out of their swing. I absolutely love being able to analyze the foot forces and pressure data with my Swing Catalyst 3D Motion Plate so that I can, again, keep my coaching as simple, yet accurate, as possible. On top of that, the Swing Cat user interface is just plain fantastic!”


“I absolutely love the Swing Catalyst 3D Motion Plate! Since installing the system at Cool Clubs, the results I have been getting with numerous PGA Tour players and regular golfers have been astounding with #clubheadspeedgains of 5-20 MPH. Using customized ground reaction force patterns for each player I can validate or disprove swing changes very quickly and efficiently and create a personalized program that isn’t possible without the feedback from the 3D Motion Plate.”


“There are two primary reasons that I chose Swing Catalyst.  First, they have fantastic products that measure foot pressure and ground reaction forces with a degree of accuracy and consistency that is research quality.  Second, they not only have a support team that will provide me with the practical help needed to use the products, the team will also provide ongoing education to speed up the learning process that comes along with integrating new technology into an instruction program.  A significant secondary benefit of teaming up with Swing Catalyst is that I will now be able to run one software program to see three kinds of information: Swing Catalyst data, TrackMan data and video synchronized with Swing Catalyst data.  The software is very elegant and highly customizable.  It became clear that teaming up with Swing Catalyst would make me a better coach, so I moved forward and am very glad that I did.”


“I have been using the Swing Catalyst 3D Motion Plate for years now. It measures what a 2D camera can only guess at, and in my business guessing is not acceptable. The system is very easy to learn to use and the certification process is the best and most rigorous that I have experienced. Dr. Scott Lynn makes the complexity of ground force reactions very easy to understand and more importantly to apply to my students. I feel that Swing Catalyst also has the best software for golf instruction. All of the 3D Motion Plate data, video, and Trackman numbers are all on one easy to read screen. I could not teach without it.”


“I have been using the Swing Catalyst 3D Motion Plate for almost 5 years now and it has opened my eyes to elements in the golf swing that I never knew existed. With it I feel like I have the ability to look behind the curtain and really understand what’s happening in a golf swing. Without a doubt Swing Catalyst has helped to make me a better golf coach.”


“As an avid student of the game, I’m always looking for the best ways to help my students and enhance my knowledge of the game.  Since adding Swing Catalyst to my instruction program, I’ve been extremely pleased with the performance of the balance and motion plate.  Additionally, I’m a big fan of the seamless software integration that Swing Catalyst provides so that your video files, launch monitor data, and pressure plate data is stored within each clip.  These benefits, along with Swing Catalyst’s fantastic support team, have made owning Swing Catalyst a great experience.”


“Our clients’ golf game is very important to us! As one of six Balance Golf Developers in Sweden, I want to make sure that the golfer will develop all parts of their game. This includes everything from reducing stress to the body, increasing the efficiency of energy-transfer to the golf ball, improving the course management and to make sure of controlling and repeating a consistent impact. With the Swing Catalyst system (3D Motion Plate and the 4 video cameras), we are able to measure and determine the development of our clients. I am very satisfied with the Swing Catalyst System and I recommend it to all colleagues I meet.”

Guillaume Biaugeaud


“Swing Catalyst is for me the only measurement unit that you can use from beginners to Tour Pros. It’s a must-have piece of equipment if you want to learn and improve your teaching skills, if you want to improve your players’ game faster and if you want to increase your business and income. It’s so easy to set up, use and understand that you will not be able to teach without it anymore. The high frame rate of the cams with the very high precision of the balance and force plate will let no chance for guessing, and all your players’ profiles will be very clear and more easy to improve. The relation between the feet and the ground is, for me, simply the most important thing to work on if you want to improve your players’ ball striking. With Swing Catalyst you will work on stability improvement, on increasing power and a lot more.”


“The Combination of high-speed video, balance and force plate data along with launch monitor integration makes Swing Catalyst the premier system for golf coaches who desire the best in analysis technology.”


“Every golfer is unique in how they swing the club in time and space. Only by being able to combine high-speed video, swing radar information, and understanding the students’ ground reaction pattern am I truly able to create a swing blueprint for each golfer. Swing Catalyst’s ability to integrate all three into a real-time application gives me the keys to proceed with each student. The traces I get from Swing Catalyst help me to guide each student into the changes necessary to help them use the ground more efficiently and create more power, resulting in longer, straighter shots. The Swing Catalyst 3D Motion Plate is the Ferrari of all force and pressure plates. Thank you Swing Cat for giving me a better set of eyes to evaluate and implement change in each student.”
